Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton certainly haven’t been put out financially because of their divorce. A copy of the papers Blake filed on July 6 appeared online July 21, and show that finalizing the split only cost $193!
With a prenup and no kids, Blake Shelton, 39, and Miranda Lambert’s, 31, divorce moved along much faster than we’re used to seeing in Hollywood. Just two weeks after the “Sangria” singer filed, the pair announced their split and a judge signed off on the papers, which have now surfaced online, on July 20. So…who gets what?
Because the papers, obtained by InTouch, are sealed, we haven’t learned much more from them, although it is noted that Blake only had to pay $193.70 to get the docs put together. Considering he’s worth millions, that little amount probably won’t set him back too much! The documents also reveal that Blake petitioned for a protective order on July 6, which the judge approved one day later.
The specifics of how Blake and Miranda will split up their shared assets weren’t part of the public part of the papers, but it’s reported that she’ll take the exes’ Nashville property, while he’ll get their ranch in Oklahoma, according to Us Weekly. In terms of the duo’s many pets, the mag’s source says things are still being worked out, but they will allegedly each get to keep their own hoes, and Miranda will keep most of the dogs.
“This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately,” the country stars announced in a statement on July 20. “We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
While many assumed it was probably Blake’s flirtatious behavior and hard-partying lifestyle that led to the split, the latest reports claim that it’s actually the other way around — Miranda allegedly cheated on him. She had been rumored to have a fling with longtime pal Chris Young, 30, in the past, but according to TMZ, Blake learned about a different indiscretion, which is what led him to pull the plug. Meanwhile, Chris has denied having anything to do with the split.
